The dictionary defines it as… Gratitude- thankfulness, gratefulness, or appreciation is a feeling or … Read More Tis the season…. for Gratitude

What a crazy week and hot end to the week. The temp is over 80*, but the humidity makes it very hot. It seems to fit memorial day weekend when all the pools open and BBQ start full force. We don’t have many plans for the weekend. If it is not too hot tomorrow  a friend who has two golden retrievers and I with my two … Read More Prayers and Flowers
